Like many kids growing up in LA, my parents started me in a talent agency. I successfully became a SAG actress with numerous commercials, but I realized acting wasn’t my first love. I’ve always been in love with dance! By the time I realized that dance was what I wanted to pursue, I was busy with honors and AP classes in high school and college so I no longer had time for dance.
When I was 19, I saw gogo dancers for the first time at a club in Long Beach. From that moment on, I knew I HAD to be a gogo dancer. It was a great way to still continue my education and keep dance in my life. I hit up a few people and got my first gogo gig that week. I just love the rush of dancing in front of large crowds in a club atmosphere!
Through dancing at various venues, I met a lot of people in the car show and modeling industry, and next thing I knew, I was posing for photoshoots. I love it all but I still find it strange to be considered a “model.” I consider myself a dancer first who accidentally became a model haha!
After finishing my engineering degree, I worked as an engineer for 2 years. When the last company I worked for flopped, I decided I wanted a change. I wanted to still be able to enjoy my youth without having a 9-5 job. So I moved to Vegas of course! I am now a cocktail waitress at the #1 nightclub in Vegas, Marquee, and I love my job!! Come visit me at Marquee Nightclub every Friday, Saturday, & Monday nights! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
